The growth of the colony has been
very rapid. In 1861 there were 1,631

1865 the namberhad increased to 2,626.
Nearly every tinnily has a coMfortable

,The chief crops are tobaedo, sugar cane,

'and hops Can•be profitably cultivated.
Th,us far the tobacco crop has proved the

The success of this colony is not en
tirely explained by the richness of the
Boil or the proverbial thrift of German
emigrants. A part of the credit is due
to Dr. Illumentur and his coadjutorS.
Their management of the colony "has
been marred from the first by sterling
,good sense. They, have not paid any
emigrant's passage-money unless he
WaS'plainly unable to pay it for

the funds of the colony. They have
inns at Rio do Janelyo, and at the vill

eted, their farms, or plots of ground,
and built temporary houses. 'the land
IA never given away, but it is sold at
very low rates. It was surveyed, .so that

'After the colonist has cleared his
ground and dug drains, some little time
elapses before it becomes fit for cultya
tion. During this interval he is
ployed by the colony, at good wages,
on the roadS,'ok, at other works of gen
eral utillity. When his ground becomes
dry, the colony supplies him with seeds
and t'arming, implements, . for which he
is, expected to pay when he has money

' During the first six months of his res
idehee in the colony he is entitled to
the - gratitiotis service of a :physician
speaking his own language. This gen
tleman is the Board of Health of the
colony, and discharges his duties in so
efficient a Manner that the' general
health is invariably preserved.
Under this system the colonist is
helped at every step, and yet left to de
pend upon himself. He receives no
rams. Loans are made to hiln out of
the common fund, which he is to repay
whenever, he becomes able. His suc
cess depends upon, his diligence and
ecOnomy. - Nearly all who have joined
the colony have possessed these proper
ties, and are now thrifty farmers own

was often heard on the side of Freedom.
The Gubernatorial contest of , 18.57,
was not:entered into With any hope of
slice rss , but to fix the radical, anti-sla
very sentitnent of the State. The Re
publican party of the State had made a
gallant fight for Fremont, and disclosed
a wonderful degree ofsound public gen

relapse back into conservatism, that Mr.
tyli - not made the canvass for Governor.
T 16. result justified his expectations,
and, his labors thatT year did much to
establish the Corrinionwealth on the
side of Freedom. .
?In 1860 the North was thoroughly
aroused by the pro-slavery outrages of
the preceding years to Meet the aggres
sors at the ballot-box. Mr. Wilmot's
preferences were early expressed for
Abraham Lincoln, as the most avail
able candidate of thellepublican party
for the Presidency.
The State Convention declared for
Gen. Cameron,- and Mt. Wilmot was
selected by him as a Vdlegate at large,
to the Chicago Convention. He was
chosen temporary chairman of that or
ganization, and when G6n. Cameron's
name was withdrawn, had much influ
ence in controlling the Pennsylvania
delegation for Mr. Lincoln, thus •con
tributing largpky, to his nomination.
He enjoyed in a gpecial degree the
confidence and regard of the. lamented
Lincoln, during his Administration.
Mr. Wilmot wigs appointed a delegate
from Pennsylvania to the celebrated
Peace Congress held at Washington in
February, 1861, to devise sonic ,plan to"
restore the quiet of the country, and
save the Union. In the deliberation ,ot
this body he was tin active participant.
The selection of .Gen Cameron as
.Secretary of War, by President Lincoln,
created a vacancy in the U. S. Senate,
to 1111 which, Mr. Wilmot was elected
and took his-seat in that body March
18, 1861. A field of usefulness and honor
was now opened before. hint, in which
his friends confidently expected him to
win for himself a ; still loftier mune,
while engaged in advancing the cause
of litumut rights. In thepritne of man
hood, in the full vigor of his mental
powers, revered everywhere as the
champion of Freedom, the friends of
humanity took new courage from . his
presentee in the Seing 4 te. But at the
outset of his Sena f terflife insidious
disease laid its prostra 4-.1 ,. d upon
him. His health g adua failed,
until it was almost impossible_ for him
to attend to the routine of hiS Senato
rial duties. He served two years fn the
Senate, on the Committees oni,.Foreign
Aflitirs, Claims had Pensions, find was
succeeded in 1863, by Mr. Buckalew.
At the conclusion of his Senatorial
term ho was appointed by President
Lincoln a Judge of the Court of Claims.
which office he held up to his death.
But few public men have achieved
uch an enviable and wide,-spread rep-,
Cation at so early an ago and with so
little effort as Mr. Wilato.r. This was
due, in a measure, perhaps, to eircum
,stances, but more to the man himself.—
'Possessed of n commanding' exterior, a
•pollsbed address, and an eloquence and
earnestness which never failed to corn-
Mand attention and strike conviction to
every hearer, was ebnibined abilities 'nl
the very highest Order. Mr. Wflanyi
was a profound thinker—his mind was
exact and comprehensive. Be may lie
said to haVe grasped a subject-intuitive
ly. What other men acquire by pains
, tapig, and studentilife came to him
wfthout, labor, and apparently without
effort. His peculiar formation of Mind
enabledhlw at once to grasp a subject
in all its, branches and details. He de•
teAed instantly, all that was false and
illogical :%in a proposition. The ease
with which he Mastered subjects pre
sented for his consideration, made him
perhaps: unwilling- to' encounter that
severe teil• which is necessary .in all
great Men, who wish to reachTthe pin
nacle or human fame..
It may seem paradoxical thus to say
that Mrf,.W.Ltzto'r was not a 'politician
in the ordinary and Vulgar' acceptation
of the term. We know that such is not
the general reputation he bore, hot
those who knew him intimately, wilt
bear I*f: 4 :Witness when we sifzy that of al!
the ordinary intrigues of party- leaders,
and tire movements of party machine-
Ty, he had a great contempt, and wit,
profoundly 'ignorant. In the principle:-
underlyin% political organiFations, -he
was greatly interested, but 1.1.'m detail::
even of his own campaigns his friends
were affeustomed to manage and co t
trol. He despised the tricks of oral y
political schemers,
and instead of fon l
ing combinations he relied upon the
honesty add intelligence of the people.
This was really the great secret of h 4
power with, the 'people. Honest :it'd
sincere hinfself,, he. believed that e
masses were equally so,•and 'when a -
tacked, he went boldly and confidently
to the people, in school-houses and
churches, and plead - hig own cause, and
the cause of equa ~, ts. His trust in
the voters was rc, Rad by the.confidence
and regard they had for him, as evinc
ed by many a hard fought battle. IZ - 0
man was ever so firmly entrenched - in
the hearts of our people as DAVID WIL
MOT. •
As a lawyer and judge, Mr. Wm:qui
achieved considerable reputation. All
his tastes and'habits were opposed to
the labor and. dry details of the practice
of his professiolii, and his mind was
much absorbed hi the more fayorite con
sideration of political questions. But
to the discussion) of legal quwtions, he
brought that greht, intuitive acumen
which at once,, probeda subject to the
very depths. 'Mitny of his appeals to
the juries of thebounty were unsurpass
ed for eloquence and earnestness, whilst
his argunientspon questions of law
were able and'} ti exhaustive. - Upon the
bench, he disarined the enmity of his
foes by his,lt a partiality and

Suburbs Of Damascus.
Out6de Damascus, close by the- spot
where tradition telLs_us: that St. Paul
was lowered from the wall in the bas
ket, and where the dragowens show, to'
anybody who likes to believe them, the
tomb of the identical ::St. Oeorge who
killed the dragon, there is a sight which
tew,travelers see, and fewer care to - talk
about when they have seen it. There .
is a little town outside the town—a, eort
of subprban annexeewith wails of its ,
own, and a gateway, standing • about a
bowshot from - the public road thatpass
es towards the gate.- The only thing_
- which would attract attention -to the
plage, besides its odd-isolation from the
city proper, is ,the —Wide berth which
everybody seems to give it. You do not
'see any of the brown Bedouin tents
pitched near the spot. nor anybody go
ing in or coining k out ; and it the goats
or camels graze Coo near the mud walls,.
the Syrian body in charge spits and
shrieks out an Arab anathema upon all
their collateral relations on the matern
al side, which he enforces with a ,brok
en pitcher, or-a palmstalk, on the re
soundiug ribs of the offending cattle.—
surprised' by this, you inquire, and you .
learn that the lepers of Damascus live
altogether in this little extramural en
closure. That fact contents most trav
elers ; but some, not having the fear of
death or dikes() , before their eyes, or
touched with pity for a class thus—per-
Mips unnecessarily—cut - off' from hu
man intercourse, have crept through
the little gateway into this townlet of
"Death in Lil." At first 'nothing
whatever is sect but a little open space,
-surrounded by low cottages of wattle
and palm leaves, with a fewpitchersly-!
lug about. The lepers cannot stand the :
sunlight if they have been long afflict- ,
eel—they keep ' indoors i" and thus, _
excep' a carrion-crow or two, or a yule(

Moslem fatalist says that, they ' might

Eastern fashion. " In the namoof 'God,
,peace and compassion here! who is
there ?" Then come creeping an d -
blinking into the glare those whomake
a strong heart sick with pity and aston
'ishment, to see the ravage which the
house of the soul can bear before Death
sets it free. D6corttin forbids that .we

A Fluit TING MAN.—One of the gen
eratti of the "Lost CauSe" says that at
about, the time of the attaetk upon Fort
Willow the confederates had converted .
a Mississippi boat into a eotton-clad,
the mate of which was a big,•do,uble—
fisted sample of a river bully, "full",of
strange oaths" and always enforcing:
his orders by i:tirielting men abolth the
